The Bisons are giving kids the opportunity at an once-in-a-lifetime experience...all they have to do is raise money for their own little league team.

The 2012 All-Star Home Run Derby is set for Monday, July 9 at Coca-Cola Field and the Bisons need to fill out their roster of Subway Shaggers. Here's a great chance for kids to get on the field for the All-Star event, show their skills to the fans of Western New York and help support their own little league team.

All they need to do is sell tickets to either the Home Run Derby or the 25th Annual Triple-A All-Star Game at Coca-Cola Field on July 11. For every ticket sold, your team or your league will receive part of the proceeds.

For every 30 tickets sold, your team will receive an entry into a Home Run Derby lottery.  We'll then pick two winners who can bring their team as Subway Shaggers for the Triple-A Home Run Derby on July 9.

Interested teams should contact the Bisons by calling THE-HERD at (716) 843-4373 or by sending an email to The deadline to enter is July 1, so contact the Bisons soon. The winning team will be allowed to bring 15 players aged 12-16 as Subway Shaggers. All shaggers must have a ticket to the Home Run Derby to participate.
